ASDA

Case Study

Background
Formed by a group of Yorkshire farmers, Asda is now part of the global retail giant Wal-Mart and has 265 stores and 19 depots across the UK.

Requirement
As part of a major restructuring programme Asda took the radical decision to temporarily close twelve of its stores at a time, whilst they were being rebuilt with mezzanine floors. The challenge for Asda was how to maintain their existing service without inconveniencing their customers. To replace each supermarket would require a large insulated temporary facility, fitted out with services such as air conditioning, power etc, to provide customers with the comfort, safety and service expected from the retail group.

Asda were aware that there were systems and companies that could create a basic temporary facility within a store’s car park, but they were not aware of any company with the kind of sophisticated structures, stocks and expertise that could meet their aspirations and deliver such an ambitious rolling programme; until they met Spaciotempo.

Solution
Our solution was to use a configuration that utilised five interlinked buildings each 15m x 55m, plus a 5m x 55m unit creating an overall footprint of 80m x 55m or 4,400 sq m of retail space at each site. The tight rolling programme involved installation of twelve of these temporary supermarkets every three weeks at Sheffield, Tamworth, Great Bridge, Trafford Park, Hull, Cardiff, Aintree, St Helens, Kendal, Colchester, Merthyr Tydfil, Govan – the equivalent of over half a million sq ft of buildings in operation at any one time.

Throughout the programme Spaciotempo worked with other specialist contractors in the supply of air-conditioning, power, etc.

Benefit
The efficient and effective response from Spaciotempo has helped Asda’s complex and ambitious restructuring programme run to schedule, without inconveniencing customers in anyway whatsoever.

Feedback from the initial trials at Sheffield was very positive and in the first week the temporary superstore saw an actual increase in weekly turnover!
